After a year of watching your neighbors remodel their homes with state-of-the-art gyms and your coworkers mention their intense cycling course, it's your time to join the ride. Enter MYX II Plus, the new addition to your home that doesn't require knocking down a wall.

When MYX Fitness reached out with details on their new bike and upcoming BODi platform (Beachbody On Demand Interactive, a premium content platform that offers live, immersive connected fitness classes) I was instantly curious. Riding a bike indoors can feel pretty dreary sans the upbeat instructor, loud music, and pulsing lights. And if that sounds like a headache, finding a solo scenic experience didn't sound possible. Would it actually feel like I was in a class? Sure enough, testing out the beta app on my phone and through the MYX II Plus bike my questions, were answered!

To make your experience even more customizable, the bike includes Openfit, a unique digital fitness platform. If you're looking for interaction when you work out or peace and quiet, this bike and accompanying platforms deliver without you leaving your home. You can choose through live and on-demand heart rate-based workouts customized to your personal heart-rate zone or boutique-style training group classes. The positive coaching to keep you motivated and on track towards your goal setting is a special bonus.

Retailing for $1,599, the bike is available in two colors, white or charcoal, with an option to go the Plus route. The upgrade makes your home look better! This feature includes a sleek (sweatproof) swivel touchscreen tablet, yoga mat, stabilizing mat, a large exercise mat, EVA Foam roller, a heart rate monitor, resistance band, 20W speakers, and a beautiful powder blue six-piece weight set. For $29 per month, one membership makes room for five profiles. What's even better? (Unlike with some competitors) You don't need cycling shoes! Quickly maneuver off the bike for a short HIIT workout giving your roommates or family members time to take the bike for a spin.

My favorite feature about the MYX Bike Plus, besides its sleek design, is that it meets you where you are. As someone who likes to jog to start my morning routine, I find on my busiest days I don't have the time to head do so. Heading to my designated workout area gives me the opportunity to focus on the journey ahead and answer a few emails while sings out of the speakers.

Whether you're a pedaling beginner or skilled spin-class extraordinaire, here's a true home gym that you won't regret making room for. The MYX Plus has everything you need and then some.
